TEXAS -

It’s been another dry year in Texas and that could mean another active wildfire season. This week is Wildfire Awareness Week in the Lone Star State.

Here are some tips to avoid starting a blaze:

Never burn leaves on a windy day, don’t leave a lit grill unattended, keep water near you when doing anything that could create a spark, and monitor local burn bans and if you see a fire, call 911.
